Chimaphila maculata

I ran into an old friend while I was out today, but I couldn’t remember her name. I knew it started with chim… but I couldn’t remember what was next. I was pretty sure that she was in the Heath family, the Ericaceae.

I actually pulled out my phone so I could Google chim… and see if it would jog my memory. No way. Do you know how many things start with chim? I had to look in an actual book to be able to find the rest of the name. Fancy that!

I found the image, which is somewhat similar to the plants I found, here.
